Getting these done at the weekend.
Got some mintex ones. Is there a particular way they need bedding in? Or will I be ok to just drive as per normal. Thanks.

Have something to contribute?

My dad always used to say not to brake hard in the 1st 100 miles, and  nicely bedded-in brakes work better/ last longer, , i don't think its as important as it once was, with modern pad materials now- and its just a question of getting the "balance" right. i think you just have to build them up progressively, over a good few miles, depending on the type of driving you do
